Teaching Notes.

Item 5. Again remember the importance of the usually’s here and that this series of lessons deals only with choosing among the <c>, <k>, and <ck> spellings of [k]. The other eight [k] spellings were identified in lesson 9. The spellings discussed in lessons 20 and 21 are a separate issue.
